Hi folks – Today Adobe announced the release of Adobe CC 2015.3. It’s full of awesome new features and improvements that we know you are eager to start using.

The great news is that, with a free update, most of your current Red Giant products are Adobe CC 2015.3-compatible. Once updated, all of our products will run perfectly in Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro CC 2015.3 – with a few exceptions.

Known Issues

The following products are not yet CC 2015.3-compatible:

  • Red Giant Universe
    UPDATE: As of 6/28/16, Universe is compatible with CC2015.3 

We are working on these compatibility updates and they will be ready shortly.

How to Update for CC 2015.3-Compatibility

  • This update is FREE to current users. To ensure that your Red Giant tools are CC 2015.3-compatible, you’ll need to download and run the latest installers HERE.

  • MAGIC BULLET: If you are using a current version of Magic Bullet Suite, you do not need to update anything. The most up-to-date Magic Bullet Suite 12 products are already CC 2015.3-compatible, and will work without any additional installation. 

An Important Note from Adobe:

If you wish to keep CC2015 running alongside CC2015.3, when installing, remember to deselect “Remove Old Versions” in the Creative Cloud app. Read more about keeping previous versions installed from Adobe RIGHT HERE.

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to our SUPPORT TEAM for help. We are here for you.

  1. My body is ready.

  2. The installers on the account/products page do not include 2015.3 options — I made the mistake earlier of downloading the Trapocde suite from my products page. Re-tried with the link and everything is fine.

  3. Is there an ETA for Red Giant Universe? I don’t know what I’m missing yet…

    1. Bryan,

      No ETA as of yet. We are currently working on Universe and we will let everyone know once it is ready.
      We really appreciate everyone’s patience during this time.


  4. Do we get a discount for time missed with Universe? Or should I cancel my subscription until it is ready?

    1. Noah,

      We just released an update for Universe with new tools and compatible with CC 2015.3. Please check out our blog for more information of Universe 2:

      Thank you for your patience!

  5. Is there support for all of Trapcode Suite 12 or have I been versioned out of using Particular?

    1. Alex,

  6. Can you point me in the direction of the compatible version of 12? Version 12.1.9 does not support AE 2015.3 and the installer I get from your product page wants me to buy the new version of Particular. That would be great!

  7. None of those installers worked directly for installing Particular 2.2.6. After Effects 2015.3 could not find Particular.

    Finally I solved it, by using this installer from ,
    checked “Install for After Effects CC 2015” and manually copied the “Trapcode” folder from

    Program Files > Adobe > Adobe After Effects CC 2015 > Support Files > Plug-ins


    Program Files > Adobe > Adobe After Effects CC 2015.3 > Support Files > Plug-ins

    Seems to work so far.
